Goals and Focus of the Program
The Master of Arts in Curriculum & Instruction program focuses on curriculum development, teaching strategies, and integration of technology into teaching throughout the curriculum. Candidates will gain in-depth knowledge of the relationship between teaching and learning as well as how to use that knowledge in developing curriculum. There are courses to develop the student-centered, backward-designed curriculum plans intended to meet the needs of all students including second language learners and special needs students as well as courses on learning styles, assessment, reading, and using technology to create a backdrop for developing appropriate student-centered curriculum plans.
The Master of Arts in Curriculum & Instruction program follows a cohort model in which face-to-face sessions take place from 4:45 PM – 8:45 PM on the same night of the week at a central location. Eight-week courses include a combination of face-to-face as well as online sessions, with the possibility of courses being delivered fully online. The duration of the program is approximately two years.
Candidates in the Master of Arts in Curriculum & Instruction program must have a Bachelor’s degree from a regionally-accredited institution with a minimum GPA of 2.50, a valid Connecticut Teaching License, one-year of full-time, contracted teaching experience, and access to a classroom and students throughout the duration of the program to fulfill field study requirements.
